March 24th 2014

This week has been pretty interesting, my mood has changed a little bit..... haha and I have just put my head down just trying to stay focused on the work! Some exciting things that have happened this week, we had an earthquake that was pretty crazy being up on the 8th floor in our church and you start to feel the ground start moving and your swaying back and forth... haha Elder liu (leo) he is one of the other elders in our apartment, but he got in a pretty bad accident this week and luckily just a couple scrapes and bruises. He was coming around a corner out in farm land and there were bushes blocking so they couldn't really see around the corner and a scooter came flying around and slammed into him! The scooter was like totaled and the guy on the scooter messed up his nose and had blood all over his face and it was going everywhere!! Elder Liu got knocked out for a little while they spent most of the day at the hospital and came back later that day. He is doing fine now and his bike is fine to!!! So amazing!!!  That was pretty exciting. ha

Couple questions for you guys. Has Brett got his learners permit yet?? haha I haven't heard anything on that I am guessing he has but maybe not... If he has I am super happy I am on the other side of the world!! (just kidding Brett) Then what happened to a picture every month?  The last one I got was on my 6th month mark but it was for my third month... I only have up to my third month haha Love you guys.

The work is kind of the same as before just trying to find some good people and get our eternal investigators to commit! We have one that is super cool!! He is 23 and I am determined to baptize him!! I think he will eventually, just need to keep working with him! He says he hasn't had a strong feeling yet but he also hasn't been reading and praying. We found this cool Pilipino this week and he actually lives in our apartment building, he is a member but hasn't known where a church is at so he hasn't gone since he got to Taiwan. He is super cool he is on a dance team and they travel and get paid to dance!!! His favorite dance style is to crump!

I also had the opportunity to go on exchanges with the zone leaders this week and that was awesome!! He is so funny! We contacted a guy or what we thought was a guy then we heard it start to talk and we weren't really sure what it was haha he/she acted really femmy and sounded like a girl but had a little mustache and short guy looking hair. Then Elder Magnason just straight up asked him by saying "sorry but are you a boy or a girl...." haha it was a guy luckily because he started off by calling him a shuai ge (handsome boy) but He said he had interest before we even really started talking to him so hopefully it was in the gospel and not us!!! haha

Today we went to see a cool HUGE buda that is why we are emailing later. I will send pictures, we took a lot but it was super Asian and probably what you guys think of when you think of Taiwan!!!  Just another day in PARADISE!!! Love you all!!!

Love Elder Roberts :)
